Ship Registration

Hong Kong is the world’s fourth largest shipping register in terms of gross tonnage. To render more direct and prompt support to international shipowners at the ports concerned and to promote the Hong Kong Ship Register, the Marine Department has set up regional desks at the Economic and Trade Offices of London, Shanghai and Singapore. More regional desks will be set up in phases in North Asia, North America and Australia.
